The diminutive Torrey Pines State Reserve Extension area is a little farther removed from the ocean than the main reserve, but in many respects it is equally interesting. The gnarled Torrey pines clinging to stark, eroded sandstone walls here aren’t seen by very many visitors. The area’s narrow, less well-maintained pathways offer a sense of peacefulness and isolation you can’t get along the main reserve’s well-beaten trails.
